SUGAR FREE SUNNY HAWAIIAN SMOOTHIE
I get asked quite often what the number one thing I love to make for my children when they’re home all day long. It is definitely smoothies! They love them and so do I because they are sugar free, healthy full of fresh fruits and vitamins. I won’t lie though, my kids don’t think they’re sugar free. They actually think they’re loaded with sugar because there is so much flavor in them. So it’s a win-win for the kids and for mom!
Making smoothies has become something that my kids and I do together before they head to school or go to activities. They pick out their favorite fruits and I sneak the the xylitol and erythritol sweetener to make it sweet. Score! Mom-1 and Kids-1. This past summer my kids actually kept asking for this healthy superfood loaded with vitamins smoothie. They basically got all fruits that reminded them of Hawaii, so a lot of pineapple! And surprisingly enough, it tasted so good. It is now a classic summer smoothie at our home that we make all of the time.
Choose to make healthy and sugar free foods for yourself and your family, you will notice the different. No more carrying around extra weight on your mid-section, or bad skin breakouts. In your children you can see an even mood improvement, because they won’t have the sugar high and lows. Especially if they are prone to be less attentive eliminating sugar will make a huge difference for their focus. This sweetener is a life changing for a healthy more quality of life, not only it is natural, diabetic friendly, low calorie its absolutely sweet like sugar and easy to use 1 per 1 in all your homemade recipes.
When you are craving something sweet and citrus, you can make this easy super good packed with nutrients. The other amazing thing about this smoothie is how low it is in calories, because the Lite and Sweet sweetener I use is only 3 calories per serving. Yet again, another delicious recipe that is guilt free. I love to get up early and even before going to the gym sometimes to make this smoothie because it is so refreshing, and it calls for oranges, pineapple, and plain yogurt goes extremely well together. It’s the perfect picker upper to start your day and your kids will love it too! So drink up!
2 Bananas, med.
1 can Pineapple, with juice
1 splash Lite&Sweet grenadine syrup
1 cup Orange juice, fresh squeezed
1 8oz. carton vanilla yogurt
1 cup Ice
1 tsp Lite&Sweet
Lite&Sweet Grenadine syrup:
Makes 1 cup, can be easily doubled
1/4 cup Lite&Sweet
1 cup 100% unsweetened pomegranate juice
1/2 lemon (optional)
Small sauce pan or skillet
Clean bottle for storage
Bring to a boil. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil and cook for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Cool and add lemon juice. Remove from the heat and let the mixture cool. Taste and add a few drops of lemon juice to bring out the tartness, if necessary.
Bottle. Place a funnel in a clean bottle, and pour in the syrup Cap and label with the date. Store in the refrigerator for up to one month.
Why a skillet? A skillet is much wider than a sauce pan, which helps the water to evaporate more quickly.
Don’t over boil. If you boil the mixture too long, it will start to crystalize.
